Welcome to Greek Life

Duquesne has over 30 fraternities and sororities that encourage life-time membership, academic excellence, leadership, community service and strong friendships

The Office of Greek Life not only supports social, sorority and fraternity chapters, but also fraternal professional organizations and honor societies.

Duquesne EXPO was a great turnout for Greeks!

Freshmen and transfer students new to campus had an opportunity to meet all of our student organizations at an info fair on Academic Walk from 11:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. September 2, 2015. Greek Life was well represented by all of our organizations-social, professional and honor societies. Here are a few photos!

Sigma Kappa Cuts Out Alzheimers

On April 18th, Sigma Kappa brought back their "Cut Out Alzheimer's" event, which has not been held for several years. Stylists from Philip Pelusi hair salon in Southside were gracious enough to spend their afternoon giving $10 haircuts to students and staff on Duquesne's campus. All of the proceeds from the event went to the Sigma Kappa Foundation directly supporting Alzheimer's awareness and research. From the event, $750 was raised for this amazing cause. Thank you to all of those who came out to support our chapter in raising money for a great cause!
